In recent weeks, there have been several pictures that have circulated on the network of a unit camouflaged the Mercedes E-Class unusual. Now, the German company has confirmed that it is a variant with body-on-high (we already talked about this possibility a few months ago), that will allow you to venture out to tracks in good condition without any problems and with all the livability of the E-Class Estate.
Your business name will be Mercedes E-Class All-Terrain. The main rivals for this new version of the Mercedes E-Class are the Audi A6 allroad and the newly introduced Volvo V90 Cross Country, which are also versions directly derived from models with better capabilities out of the black asphalt. The mark of the star has confirmed that the E-Class All-Terrain will be present at the Paris motor show, which will start in just a few days.
Without giving many details, Mercedes has confirmed that “it will be robust”, something that we couldn’t imagine. As in the case of the two rivals mentioned in the preceding paragraph, shall incorporate protections plastic in the low of the body giving an image more jacket and a greatest height of the body so as to navigate with greater safety barriers that we can find.
on the other hand, would incorporate the air suspension that is already available in the range E-Class, but offering a offroad mode, which will adjust its operation in an optimum way to circular for clues in this All-Terrain. It also will come always associated to the all-wheel drive 4Matic that, as in the case of the suspension, you should have a specific program to to improve traction in conditions of very low adhesion, thus ensuring the traction of the tire on tricky terrain.
Mercedes has not wanted to give many details and “save” a good part of the features, as well as the pictures and engine versions of the E-Class All-Terrain for desvelarlos in the French event. In any case, it will be the variant more versatile in the range, offering all the benefits of the family version but with certain capabilities offroad. The negative side is that your price will be slightly higher.
